A practitioner with extensive volunteer experience working with Addicts, Alcoholics, and the Disabled freely admits that:
"THE STATE OF MINNESOTA HAS NOT ADOPTED ANY EDUCATIONAL AND TRAINING STANDARDS FOR UNLICENSED COMPLEMENTARY AND ALTERNATIVE HEALTH CARE PRACTITIONERS. THIS STATEMENT OF CREDENTIALS IS FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY."
Under Minnesota law, an unlicensed complementary and alternative health care practitioner may not provide a medical diagnosis or recommend discontinuance of medically prescribed treatments. If a client desires a diagnosis from a licensed physician, chiropractor, or acupuncture practitioner, or services from a physician, chiropractor, nurse, osteopath, physical therapist, dietitian, nutritionist, acupuncture practitioner, athletic trainer, or any other type of health care provider, the client may seek such services at any time. You'll find a list of some of our local service providers here: Local Agencies
The methods of this practice are published to field useful suggestions due to the high mortality rate of the Disabled, Addicts, and Alcoholics, but the United States has the best First Response network in the world. You will find all kinds of additional resources for Responding, including mobile apps at the Department of Homeland Security: Citizen Application Directory. If you see a persistent problem unresolved, try contacting: The Department of Homeland Security, or write us at: PTSSS. In an emergency, just call: 911.
It is hoped, that just as Modern Medicine is protected by Malpractice Legislation, that Responders and Complementary Health Care workers may also be defended by Trade Unions or Labor Unions such as those made famous during the Cultural Revolution. [i]
There are no fees for services to alcoholics or addicts in this capacity.
Other services are available at any time from other agencies in the community, including these agencies: Local Agencies
A brief discussion of consent for treatment may be found here: Consent. Clients may refuse to participate in any or all of these activities and/or seek help from other agencies at anytime. The right to refuse treatment, and help with writing your own treatment plan is advocacy IMID has been involved in - some of which has been documented here: The Motivation for IMID
Though IMID has suffered retaliation for some forms of advocacy, IMID will not retaliate for any assertions of a clients claims here, or anywhere else.
